Missouri left the Big 12 with a bang. In their final season in the league, the Tigers won 30 games, earned a two-seed in the NCAA tournament, and won the Big 12 conference tournament title. But with five players graduating from a seven-player rotation, 2012-13 seemed like it would be a rebuilding year. Yet that was not Frank Haith’s plan. Thanks to the return of an injured Laurence Bowers (arguably Missouri’s best player in 2010-11), and the addition of four key transfers Oregon’s Jabari Brown, Auburn’s Earnest Ross, Pepperdine’s Keion Bell, and Connecticut’s Alex Oriakhi, Missouri has a chance to compete for the SEC title in its first year in the league.
